Southern Railway officials led by commissioner of railway safety (CRS) Abhai Kumar Rai carried out a statutory safety inspection on the 43km-long newly-electrified railway section between Podanur and Pollachi Junction on Monday, The commissioner checked electrical, engineering and signalling works on the section. A high-speed trial run, with a special train formation, was held from Pollachi to Podanur railway station. The special train was hauled by an electric locomotive. An observation car with modern equipment, to observe and record various aspects of the electrification works, was part of the special train formation.While railway had allocated Rs 159 crore for the Dindigul - Pollachi – Palakkad electrification work, Rs 31 crore was spent on Podanur section.

Palakkad railway divisions, divisional railway managers and officials from both the division were present during the trial run, besides senior officials from Chennai.
The train formation, attached to an electric loco, left Pollachi at 3pm and arrived in Podanur 40 minutes later.
The section was energised on September 1 and a few trial runs were carried by the divisional staff before it was presented for inspection. “The CRS will submit a report and recommendations on Monday. If everything goes well, train service will be started in the section soon. In case he finds any deviation or room for correction, it will be corrected, and CRS will make another inspection after the corrective measures are taken,” said a senior official.

Unless Podanur to Madurai comes under Madurai division, no useful trains can be expected in this route. Each division will fight and public will travel by buses.

A trial run of an AC electric locomotive was successfully conducted at the 41-km newly electrified Pollachi-Podanur junctions on Wednesday. The trial was held to check the efficacy of the overhead electric (OHE) traction distribution system. As the system was energised with 25,000 volts, public and staff were requested to follow safety precautions, a press release from the railways said.

Podanur Pollachi 45 kms line falls in 3 divisions of SR (Podanur in Salem divn, Kinathukadavu to Pollachi in PGT Divn and beyond Pollachi in Madurai divn). So, one cannot expect any good train in CBE MDU line.

Earlier MG lines had more trains than today. Morning Madurai ICE and passenger from CBE and PGT. Evening/ night, we had PGT RMM passenger and CBE RMM express. There were connecting trains to PGT/CBE trains from CBE/ PGT for a seamless travel at Pollachi. Now hardly any train!!

The rail electrification will facilitate elimination of diesel traction. Fle photo for representation.
The rail electrification of the 44 Route Km (RKM) Kollam-Punalur and 124 RKM Palakkad-Pollachi-Palani corridors are to be completed along with the 673 RKM km targeted by Southern Railway during 2021-22.
This is part of the ambitious goal to switch over to ‘Green Railways’ by electrifying the balance Broad Gauge (BG) routes by December 2023 to achieve 100 % electrification of BG routes.
The

other BG stretches to be completed are Madurai-Manamadurai (45 RKM), Nagapattinam-Velankanni (10 RKM), Salem-Talaivasal (73 RKM), Pollachi-Podanur (38 RKM), Thalaivasal-Vridhachalam (66 RKM), Tiruchchirappalli-Pudukottai-Karaikudi (90 RKM), Karaikudi-Manamadurai-Virudunagar (124 RKM) and Manamadurai-Ramanathapuram (62 RKM).
The rail electrification will facilitate elimination of diesel traction resulting in significant reduction in its carbon footprint and environmental pollution. In addition, a cent % electrification by 2023 would result in annual savings of ₹ 14,500 crore for railways.
In the 5,080 RKM of Southern Railway, 3,529 RKM accounting for about 70 % has been electrified till March 2021. As envisaged in National Rail Plan & Vision 2024, Southern Railway has also geared up to complete electrification of all the BG routes under it by December 2023. As much as 187 RKM of electrified lines were commissioned in 2020-21. As of May 2021, 71 % of the BG network has been electrified. Instead of making available funds from the budget, electrification is now being financed through Extra Budgetary Resources. Around ₹21,000 crore is expected to be incurred for completion of electrification.
Besides making an environmentally friendly mode of transport, the railways can go for haulage of heavier freight trains and longer passenger trains with high haulage capacity of Electric Locomotives leading to increased throughput. Increased sectional capacity by eliminating detention on account of traction change and reduced operating and maintenance cost of Electric Loco are the benefits from the switch over.

Chennai: Southern Railway may have completed gauge conversion and electrification of some stretches of lines in the state, but few attempts have been made to make the most of these to improve train connectivity. With no trains on at least three lines which are ready and not enough trains on two other lines, passengers want reintroduction of the trains that were running when the lines were metre gauge.
There are no trains on the Chennai-Ranipet stretch, now opened primarily for freight, the Dindigul-Pollachi, Madurai-Bodi and the Thiruvarur-Karaikal lines, while there are only two services along the Sengottai-Kollam stretch.

the coming months more lines are set to be ready after gauge conversion of Usilampatti-Andipatti, Andipatti-Theni and Theni-Bodinayakanur lines and doubling of Macheri Road-Mettur dam and Omalur-Mecheri Road lines are over.
Investments have been made to ready the infrastructure, but railways, fearinbg low patronage, is waiting for all the lines or the full stretch of a line to be completed before running trains.
Most of the scheduled express trains have resumed, connecting towns where there is demand for travel.
Edward Jeni, secretary of Kanyakumari District Railway Users' Association (KDRUA), said railways should run most trains on the lines that are ready after gauge conversion and electrification. “There is scope to run more trains on Sengottai-Kollam stretch and on Thiruvarur-Karaikal and Madurai-Theni stretch which will be ready soon. Railways can push for resuming trains that were running when lines were metre gauge.”
Since the Arakkonam-Salem MEMU was launched, people have been suggesting such services on short routes connecting small towns so that people can be encouraged to switch to trains from expensive buses.
An official said passenger services could not be introduced because of the Covid restrictions.
“There is scope for passenger services on the Chennai-Ranipet and the Tindivanam-Nagari stretch and also on other lines in future.” The idea is to complete ongoing infrastructure upgrade and bring more towns into the rail network so that trains can be introduced when there is a need, he added.
Sources said if private trains connecting traffic-intense towns become a success, railways may improve connections between small towns using train sets that do not need locomotives.
